The Glenn Dyer breakdown: As expected, another easy win for Seven thanks to My Kitchen Rules and Packed To the Rafters. And that means the network has already won week two of 2013 ratings. Nine was a distant second and Ten was crunched again in some markets, with MasterChef: The Professionals falling to a miserable 411,000 in metro markets and just 564,000 nationally. That’s terrible, and it pulled down NCIS, which averaged 625,000 metro and 886,000 national viewers from 8.30pm.

ABC1’s Foreign Correspondent with 552,000 (and 842,000 nationally) easily out-rated MasterChef: The Professionals from 8pm with a good report on the impending Italian elections. It seems the cooking was mostly over on Seven and those craving a bit of intelligence were on ABC1 (7.30pm also out-rated MasterChef: The Professionals from 7.30pm), and the rest were either on SBS or Blocking over on Nine.
